    Wow! What lovely meals you had! I love to just cut an avocado open, salt it a bit and eat it right out of the shell. I have never thought of putting agave on it. You have me intrigued. I love banana "ice cream" too. It is insanely good. Thanks for such nice pictures. Oh, and to answer your question, my process was quite long. Perhaps I will write a post about it, but basically I got tired of hearing about everyone getting sick and decided that I didn't want to be like that. I went raw overnight.

    I love having avocado for breakfast, like eggs, but better! 🙂 Pizza and ice cream look delicious!

    I found raw foods when I was diagnosed with crohn's 5 years ago and read a book by Paul Nison!

  5. Yummy!!!!!!!!
    I gave you kudos on my blog yesterday!! 🙂

    Also, do you have any ideas of a sub for flax in cracker, wrap or pizza crust recipes?? It really bugs my stomach, and I've tried all the kinds!!

    I hope you are writing a book soon, this stuff is brilliant!

  6. I have not made zucchini bacon this year. Thanks so much for posting this wonderful reminder.

    Your pizza looks divine! Thanks for sharing.

    Raw is something that I do more of in the summer when it is hot. But the concept was introduced to me reading Joel Fuhrman's books. The more I read about nutrition the more raw food I seem to add to our diet. 😉

    Does anyone have any suggestions for making the creamy alfredo sauce if you don't have a powerful bullet blender? Mine wouldn't be able to handle this without getting crazy hot.

    I have a new blendtec but I still don't have the hang of it for making small amounts of cream sauces like this.

    Anyone have any tips?

  8. Jessica, in a lot of cases, buckwheat can be used instead of flax … with a little olive oil to keep it from sticking.

  9. Anon, when blending nuts or anything else with lots of fat, it will heat up. Just let it sit and cool off for a minute.

    As far as the bullet type blender, I kind of made my own using canning jars and my blade assembly on my regular blender. I love it. I can use the size jar for the exact amount that I need.

    mmm! the avo eggs are brilliant, and i love how you decorated your ice cream with pea blossoms and vines.=)

    carmella from the sunny raw kitchen opened my eyes to the beauty and deliciousness of raw foods. i was into making animal-friendly desserts and an organic market wanted to sell my treats – but wanted them to be gluten-free as well as vegan.

    gluten-free baking just did not interest me. after some googling i came to carmi's page. i was intrigued but intimidated by the ingredients (like irish moss). well, a few weeks later she was in my very own kitchen showing me the ropes! i've been pretty high raw ever since.=) (this was october)

    how about you, lisa?

  11. Kelli, wow, you had an expert in your kitchen? Nice! What a way to get started!

    I ran across The Garden Diet site online, in 2003 … so it's been quite a while. That was almost the only site online at the time … there were very few recipes, etc. My first raw meal was a potato and some cabbage, because that's what I had on hand. I've been low, high, and "100%" raw at different times since then … and am happily high raw now.

    love what you're doing here! I adore the banana ice creams too.. sooo good!

  14. the pizza…oh that looks great lisa!

    i got into raw foods when i realized that my food allergies were better when i ate raw and all vegan of course. It's been a journey of 5 yrs, but have been veggie my whole life, just raw vegan the last 5 or so 🙂

    That pizza sounds so good!

    I got interested in raw foods maybe 8 months ago or so from reading reading blogs that I happened across. I'm still not very far along and really it's because I haven't just sat down with recipes and actually tried them out. I'd really like to be high raw but am, well, kind of lazy, and to me it takes more effort to make good raw foods. I know that's totally silly since I come here and read your recipes. So I officially saying that I'm going to stop being lazy and start uncooking! And the first thing I'm going to do is get your ebook because your recipes just always sound so good! Oh man, now that I put it in writing I'm really going to have to do it! 😉

    A stunning menu – I'm drooling 🙂

  18. wyllow says:

    The avocado "eggs" were soooo yummy! Was too lazy to dehyrdate the zucchini 🙂 Discovered raw foods when I found the Veganlicious blog.. and shortly thereafter discovered your blog. The simple tasty recipes on both blogs are so inspiring and delicious. I'm probably eating around 75% raw (huge improvement from even six months ago)

  19. Janice says:

    I love dehydrated zucchini, never thought of having it for breakfast until I saw your recipe.

    As for how I discovered raw food. It was a few months after I came down with a gluten allergy. I wasn't sure how to bake anymore. I stumbled upon a raw vegan strawberry pie recipe, made it and have been won over since!

    This all looks so yummy!

    I'm not raw or even vegan, but I really love raw food, and tend to eat a lot of it. A vegan friend of mine laughs that I eat more veggies than she does. Lol, I guess because I'm a volumetics whore.

    I love that your recipes are fairly small in servings, and so economical. I'm a college student, so that's important to me!
